This could be a very positive change.

Matt, I’ve used Boerne RV Service and was happy with their work.

Matt, I’ve had good experience with Sun & Fun RV in Iowa City, IA. They are expanding and moving to a new location in Tiffin, Iowa later this month. Jason Essary has communicated with their service manager, Lynn. Lynn is very thorough and has a calm and professional demeanor. I’ve been very satisfied with the work they’ve done on the Oliver. Most of that work has been with the factory’s involvement.
Another shop in the area is Midwest Frame and Axle in Iowa City. They installed my Dexter EZ Flex and charged a very reasonable amount to do the work. They also replaced the axles/brakes on my Elite II after the axles were deformed due to using jack stands for storage (that’s a long story–you may know the details, but I won’t share that info here). I highly recommend Midwest Frame and Axle for brake work, wheel bearing replacement or anything to do with the running gear. Great shop.

I can also vouch for Boerne RV. They are located about 20 miles north of San Antonio, TX which is also a nice place to visit and see the sites. Over the last 9 years, they have helped me with The Wonder Egg (Elite I) and the work has been done professionally. They have experience with both the Elite I and Elite II. The owners, Ron & Debbie, are very personable and easy to work with. They can be reached at: 830-816-3883.

Matt, do you also want negative recommendations, AKA “stay away from these guys”? If so, stay away from R&R RV, Spokane WA…..
Thanks for starting this thread, I do hope you can find a good northwest shop to partner with. Try to find one that is willing and able to get a rig into their shop within two weeks, not two months ;( I think you are going to have to find one in a smaller town, not in a big metro area like Seattle or Spokane since those are usually swamped doing warranty repairs on the @#$&* stick built trailers they sell…. outlying small towns would be way better for many reasons….
Bend, OR attracts small high-end RV manufacturers, Earthcruiser, for example. It’s probably due to the very affluent population and business tax incentives. I bet there are some good shops there but I have no experience with them. Earthcruiser is not a repair shop per se, but they do service and repairs on their wonderful machines and might possibly want to partner with you to do warranty, crash repair, highly professional mods or other stuff for some extra cash flow. It’s definitely worth a phone call to Lance Gillies, owner extrordinaire.

Locally, we’ve had very little success with independent shops.
However, I did have a great experience a few years ago with the new Camping World in New Port Richey, FL, when we had difficulty with our then new Dometic refrigerator. They handled all the warranty issues with dometic without our intervention.
This crew did a great job. Very professional communication.
We have not had other work done there

Matt: Byerly RV in St.Louis, MO has worked on our Elite II twice, once to correct a problem with the solar panels (warranty work), and the second time to install the Micro-Aire Easy Start module for the A/C. Very satisfied with their work. It’s a large facility located off I-44 about 25 miles southwest of St. Louis.
